If you can close your eyes and imagine the sweet aroma of a steamed corn dumpling, you’ll have a pretty good idea about Corundas. Corundas come from the Mexican State of Michoacán, where the indigenous peoples, known as the Purépechas, have been making them for generations. A quick glance at the ingredients list and your mind will settle quickly on tamales. Corundas are made from corn flour, or masa harina, like tamales, but they don’t usually have fillings, with the exception of cheese and a sprinkling of vegetables. Sold from food carts and stalls, corundas are typically triangular in shape and are steamed in fresh corn leaves, not dried husks like tamales.

The recipe for cheese corundas relies heavily on the flavor of corn from the masa and a great cheese, because it lacks the familiar flavors of smoky pork or spicy shredded beef that you are probably used to in a tamal. Cacique Queso Quesadilla cheese is perfect for making corundas. The cheese has a soft nutty flavor with a creamy mouth feel, and like the name implies, it melts spectacularly.

The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
